That’s a Wrap.

All good things must come to an end . It was time to call it a season. Thanks to all my old anglers and to my new friends. I hope to share some time in the boat next year. The spring run never got started the way it should have. When the squid finally arrived it was a bit late. There were no bluefish to speak of. The bright spot was the arrival of bonito and the fact that they stayed right up to now and will probably be around next week. The albies showed up on time but the three nor’easters blew them out as well as the bait. We did manage a few good albie days so it wasn’t a total loss. The big surprise was the schools of stripers that arrived in August and stayed for the rest of the season. It was the best bass fishing that we have had in 20 years. Hopefully they will have a safe winter and come back next year fat and sassy.
